5.4. It is proposed that a new Junior section is created within FPGC in an effort to promote our golf club within local schools in the community but concentrating on the immediate local area such as Budens, Burgau, Salema, Vila da Bispo, Sagres and Luz. The objective for this is not only to promote golf to local children but to encourage membership to the club amongst the parents of these children to further strengthen our club. Junior golf clinics will be set up and the organisation of this is to be established. A budget for the running of this next year will be calculated and presented for ratification and approval of the Members at the AGM.
